I'm in the final stages of sending my Christmas pictures to my family.

I notice that many of my pictures that look great on my new IPS monitor look overexposed on my old TN monitor. There is a noticeable difference on every photo but it isn't always a noticeable negative.

I calibrated both types of monitors at 80 cd based on advice from a video tutorial I watched.

Should I just expose for my good monitor and let my family see what may be a overexposed photo or should I compensate?

when i shoot a dance school, i set the skin tones about in the middle of the histagram or push the exposure for the whites to about 90% of the scale as to not clip them. then it doesnt matter whos screen is out.
